Bad behavior may be the result of a treatable condition
called canine separation anxiety
When dogs become upset by their owner’s absence, the stress can lead to abnormal behaviors, such as excessive barking, chewing, clawing or house soiling. These behaviors could indicate a clinical condition called canine separation anxiety. Up to 17% of dogs in the United States may be affected by separation anxiety.1
Developed for dogs, Reconcile (fluoxetine hydrochloride) is a once-daily chewable tablet indicated for the treatment of canine separation anxiety in conjunction with a behavior modification plan. Prescribed by veterinarians, Reconcile is approved by the FDA for use in dogs 6 months or older. Combined with training, Reconcile reduces the frequency of separation anxiety behaviors, which enables dog owners to enjoy the positive emotional connection they want with their pet.
